Felix Kwakye Ofosu, a former Deputy Minister of Information has taken on Sam Okudzeto, Council of State member for a comment he made regarding the alleged luxurious travels of President Akufo-Addo.
Mr Okudzeto had said that Ghana always benefits from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s trips outside Ghana hence too much attention should not be focused on the cost of the voyage.
“When he was going to Germany, there was hue and cry. ‘Why is he travelling? He takes these expansive planes? It cost so much per day.’ People do not understand what diplomacy is all about. Diplomacy is an expensive process, but there are always benefits. The President cannot sit down there in the Jubilee House and think all these [benefits] will just be coming to us. I don’t think it (attacks) is productive and helps the country,” Mr Okudzeto told Joy FM.
However, Felix has been disappointed in the council of state member’s comment and decided to take him on.
Felix wrote on Facebook “The NPP’s Sam Okudzeto says asking questions about the waste, extravagance and ostentation of the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government in renting expensive luxurious aircrafts for the President’s travels despite our ownership of an equally luxurious Presidential jet amounts to stupidity of the media.
“This is one of the people held up as avowed critics of poor governance and misrule in the 70s and 80s,” he said.
